Public Restroom Access During COVID-19 Closure

The Seattle Public Library is providing restroom access at some Library buildings to support insecurely housed and homeless patrons lacking restroom options during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Library Services for the Insecurely Housed

Our Outreach Program Manager discusses how we support people experiencing homelessness or housing insecurity.

SPL HotSpot

Hotspots can be reserved online by any borrower, but the Library sets aside hotspots specifically for homeless communities to use and share. We periodically visit encampments and shelters to distribute hotspots. 

If you have a question or need help, Ask Us, email communityresources@spl.org, or call 206-386-4636.
